Development and application of probabilistic simulation-based reliability and performance assessment methods for structures and building components
The subject of the proposed research project is the further development and expansion of the Simulation-Based Reliability Assessment method, SBRA, documented in textbook  and in about 260 papers published so far by 60 authors (see www.noise.cz/SBRA).A ttention will be given: (a) to the application of variables expressed by non-parametric distributions, (b) to the representation of the loads by one- and more component load duration curves and to the analysis of one- and more-component load effectscombi nations based on Arbitrary Point-in-time or Maximuma Load Effects Approaches, (c) to the definitions of reference values applied in the calculation of probability of failure using simulation technique, (d) to the safety, serviceability anddurability asse ssment of structural elements, components and simple structures, (e) to the basics of the reliability assessment of structural systems and to the development of corresponding software allowing for simulation-based analysis.
